February 2014 - Breaking the Mould for Continuous Delivery: Steve Smith

  • February 27, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Continuous Delivery asks that we optimise lead times in order to grow product revenues, but all too often the cost of the technical change outweighs the value of the business change. How can we break the mould of tightly-coupled software architectures and risk management theatre?

In this talk Steve Smith will discuss how software architecture is often an impediment to Continuous Delivery, and outline some design patterns - Tolerant Reader, API Examples, Consumer Driven Contracts - that form a low cost risk reduction strategy.

    Great session and I learned a lot of useful stuff. I'm involved in trying to convince business/product in a couple of organisations the value of CD and the session gave me great input!

    Great talk from Steve - useful detail for arguing the case with 'the business'

      Definitely gives you grounds for a (hopefully) fruitful conversation...!

    Ach! I can't register on skills matter, so I'm guessing I'm a little late to the party. Sorry for the late change of RSVP.

    Freeing up my spot as I have commitments that I can't rearrange, but I look forward to the video. Out of interest, are any of your examples covering RESTful services? I have a question around versioning and backwards compatibility which I might take offline with you Steve.

    A colleague of mine can't attend, so I released one more spot.

    Sorry a breaking work issue means I cannot make it :(

  • Amy P.

    I'm coming down with the lurgy so I'm going to have to give this a miss, sadly. Looking forward to watching the video.

    Do I need to have an account with Skills Matter to be able to attend ?

    February 4, 2014

    • stefan

      Just registered a few seconds ago. The skillmatter page says that I'm on the waiting list, should I come to the event or is it too late now and it is fully booked ?

      Just found my answer in another user's thread: "We will accept anyone who has registered and on the 'Yes' list on Meetup.com AND also registered with SkillsMatter (whether on their waitlist or accepted by SM)"

      February 26, 2014

  • Nitin

    Same here. I am put on waiting list in skillsmatter and confirmed here. May I know if I am allowed or in the waiting?

    February 25, 2014

    • Steve S.

      As mentioned above, if you're a yes on meetup.com and a yes/maybe with SM then you're fine

      February 26, 2014

  • Alex L.

    quite annoyed that i signed up to go to this quite some time ago but skillsmatter needs separate registration and so I'm now on the waiting list instead....

    February 24, 2014

    • Alex L.

      yep am good too then i guess :) thanks!

      OK great see you tomorrow James and Alex

  • Daniel M.

    Stuck overseas, just released my space, enjoy it!

    February 25, 2014

    • Steve S.

      Sorry to hear that, thanks for releasing the spot

  • Kern Herskind N.

    Is there any indication of how oversubscribed this event is? Should I make other plans or cling on to the waiting list? :-)

    February 25, 2014

    • Matthew S.

      It depends on how many people update their RSVP before the event. We usually get around 60% attendance compared to RSVPs (which is a bit unfair on those on the waitlist, imo). Join the Meetup.com waitlist, register with SkillsMatter, and wait until Thurs morning is the best I can suggest :)

      February 25, 2014

    • Steve S.

      This page currently says there are 6 spots open? In the future we'll ask for the biggest room at Skills Matter. Thanks

      February 26, 2014

  • Daniel W.

    Got something else I need to do (and looks like someone else from work is going), so changed RSVP. I'm assuming I don't need to tell Skillsmatter too

    February 25, 2014

    • Steve S.

      Sorry you can't make it, thanks for releasing the spot

      February 26, 2014

  • Amarjeet C.

    :/ How many spaces are there? Apparently i'm on the waiting list but I could do with advanced notice to travel from the Midlands.

    February 21, 2014

    • Matthew S.

      Hi Amarjeet, we've hit the limit of attendees for the venue. You should confirm at the latest the day before - people tend to update their RSVPs a few days prior to the meetups. M

      February 22, 2014

    • Amarjeet C.

      A spot opened up so we're all good! \o/

  • Hilla P.

    Very interested in this topic and the area I am very focused on

  • Liam M.

    Shame I can't attend. DevOps is a big part of our current agenda; driving Test Automation and BDD through our Java, Ruby and C# Frameworks

    February 21, 2014

  • Steve S.

    Thanks to all marked as Attending - once Skills Matter put up their registration page I'll link to it from here
